Good, but could have been great
In comedy the main factor is timing. You need a build up, the punchline and then an conclusion.
This movie had great potential but due to sloppy writing and bad editing a lot of jokes came short and did not deliver.
I watched this movie with my family. My parents and my kid, and none of us mind nudity or swearing, as long as it has some proper use. Be it comedic effect, further character building or an other god reason.
In this movie, a lot of the swearing and "nudity" was completely gratuitous and at some moments even cringeworthy. For instance the kid. The movie relied too much on the "foul-mouthed little kid" cliché and while this can be funny at times, here it at many points it was out of place. The scene with the brother in-law with the big penis could have been hilarious, but I kept waiting for the punchline and it just didn't come. Same with the rafting scene. It was an okay build up but when the joke was supposed to come to its funny part, it basically went the short way and ended the scene.
On the other side, this movie also had some hilarious scenes, although most of those were shown at the trailer.
It could have been a great movie, as all the actors were casted correctly and it had a good story, but a lot of times the jokes felt forced and cheap. A pity.
This is a review for the actual movie, not the trailer...
OK, I usually don't write reviews for movies, but as of today there are only reviews for the trailer and I find this to be quite stupid...similar to judging a book by its cover or by its summary...
Anyways... I just came out of the first screening of this movie in Canada. What is my first impression? My first reaction to it? I am entertained! For those who want to watch something profound, deep, meaningful or even something you will remember...this is not the right movie for you, but if you just want to get entertained for 2 hours, get some cheap scares, some good laughs (this movie is currently my #1 in most unintentionally funny movies made) and just forget about the world, this is definitely it.
Pros: - Entertaining. For me thats the most important thing. It's nothing great, but entertaining. You will have a lot of laughs and some scares. - A rather new and interesting concept. It's not as shaky and unsharp as found footage movies but isn't a normal filmed movie either....also it embodies the whole social network very well. It's feels like you are on your computer.
Mehh: - I believe it's a movie that you either watch at the cinema or not at all. I feel like it will loose most of its (already very little) tension and effect if you watch it somewhere else. - Quite forgettable. It's nothing special. It just isn't...
Cons: - The acting is quite lousy. Sometimes it's distracting, but maybe I'm too critical. - Predictable. You know from the beginning what's going to happen... - Stupid reactions...OK...this is a horror movie, so...if everyone made everything right in horror movies, half of them wouldn't exist, but I just couldn't stop thinking why they behaved the way they did...
Overall: 6.5/10 If you get a ticket, if you can convince a group of friends to join you, if you just want a date flick or are just bored and want to be entertained, this is the perfect horror movie for you. If you expect more than that, you will get disappointed.
